“I am a doctor and a HUGE fan of EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46 sunscreen with niacinamide for the face. It is the only facial sunscreen product (and believe me when I say that I have tried them ALL) that doesn’t cause my combination of cystic and peri-oral micro pustule acne to flare up. I love it so much, I wear it almost every day of the year.”, West Bloomfield, MI

“I brought my EltaMD UV Clear to wear while working in Dubai. It is to die for…love, love, LOVE!” – , Potomac Falls, VA

“Having a strong “T” zone, I have had breakouts on my forehead most of my adult life.  When I was entering menopause it seemed to get much worse and nothing I tried seemed to help. In fact, most products just produced dry peeling skin until I started using UV Clear as my daily moisturizer.  My original apprehension was that if I used it on my entire face, it might dry out the rest of my face outside the “T” zone since I was prone to predominantly dry skin everywhere else on my body, but this amazing product has kept my break-outs under control without any harmful effects to any other part of my face for over 2 years now… in fact I feel my full face is in better condition in my 50’s than it has ever been at any point in my adult life.”, Plano, TX

“I have been using EltaMD products for the past year and a half and absolutely love the line.    My initial introduction to EltaMD began with the UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46 sunscreen.  This sunscreen goes on light, doesn’t irritate my skin, and provides excellent protection throughout the day.”, San Diego, CA
